If FML has taught me anything, it's that when you overreact to things, you end up looking like a fool when they show you how stupid you are
You act just like my father. Whenever something stupid starts, he just picks up the phone and starts yelling. What ends up happening is the guy proves him to be an idiot and WE'RE left with an embarrased grouch who starts yelling when we ask him where to put his clean laundry. And one thing I've learned about working in costumer service is that you NEVER EVER yell at the guy who a) works behind the counter and b) tells you what you can/cannot do. There is ALWAYS somebody above him telling him how to act, whether he agrees with it or not.
A cord.. that activates.. hot water? I have to admit, I can't even picture that.
Although you probably should have addressed the problem sooner and definitely shouldn't have gotten so angry, FYL for having to pull a cord to get hot water. Unless that's standard procedure in Manchester, the hotel (or whatever your accommodations are) should have provided instructions.
Yeah, you might want to wait until she's a little older to explain that one to her. your daughter: "Daddy, why didn't you and mommy tell me about my brothers and sisters?" you: "Err....Mommy doesn't know? There's a secret club." daughter: "Secret club? Can mommy and I be in it?" you: "Uh, no. Please don't tell your mother" daughter: "Mommyyyy!!!!!! I've got brothers and sisters!"
